Researching Cat & Kitten care on the OBX

Outer Banks Families that have feline family members will be celebrating Happy Cat Month. 

There are other families, that are just considering welcoming, a new feline family member.

It is always a good idea to research and learn as much as you can, about any pet that you are thinking of adding to your family. Pets are more than companion animals, they become members of your family. Pets just like people have individual spirits and temperaments. 

Since September is Happy Cat Month, research this month has started with Cat and Kitten Care. 

Thanks to advances in technology, researching now is right at your fingertips. The internet is the number one starting point now on any subject. We used the number one search engine Google. As I have been told, "if you have a question, just Google it."

Some people when adopting a feline will want a kitten. Kittens and Cats have different needs. There are thousands of books just on Kitten Care. Amazon returned 30 thousand results for, "Kitten Care Book." Google had 7,910,000 results for, "Kitten Care Book." 

Then Google Books having over 10 Million Public Domain Works & Books currently archived, came to mind. So, I searched in Google Books for Kitten Care and Cat Care as well.

By learning about your new pet beforehand, you will be prepared. Once you start to research, you will learn of the many available choices, for the many needs of your new feline friend.

There is a lot to consider when welcoming a new pet into your family. The Love of your new pet family member and new memories that await will fill your heart will love for years to come.

Autumn is Awesome on the Outer Banks! 1st Day of Fall!

Today is the first day of Fall. The dog days of summer are behind us. The extreme heat has left and the cooler days of fall have transcended. 

Even though the weather is cooler, the heat inside a car continues to rise quickly. Please do not leave your beloved Pampered Pet inside an unattended car.

Fall is the perfect time to explore all of the pet-friendly places that the Outer Banks has to offer. There are historic sites, State and National Parks, oceanfront adventures, nature trails and so much more.  Please see the Outer Banks Pet-Friendly Places page.

Also, take a look at the Outer Banks Leash Laws and Beach Access page.  Each township is listed with its individual leash law. The towns also have a letter to correspond with the Map at the end of the page.

Now that Fall is here and Labor Day is behind us, many of the leash laws have changed providing more freedoms and access.

September 22, 2021, the start of Fall on the Outer Banks is the perfect time to plan a Pet-Friendly Adventure. Autumn is Awesome on the Outer Banks!
